    Diagnosis

    Hi there I have been having symptons for a couple of years now and the doctors can't seem to figure out exactly what I have. It first started in 2016 when I got a headache that felt like it was cracking my head open, just after the headache started I battled to look at any lights. This got increasingly worse and I started getting a fever. I was exhausted and could not stay awake. About 3 hours later I went to the doctor. They admitted me into hospital straight away suspecting meningitis. I was....

    Constant Left Arm Pain - M.S. starting?

    About 4 months ago I started getting pains in my left arm. Original starting spot was Elbow area only. Then it expanding to about 3" below the Elbow but, not always both directions sometimes just one. Now periodically pain will go to ends of my fingers and/or top of my shoulder. The pain area changes as well as the pain severity frequently but the area that is constant, literally daily, is upper/outer elbow down about 3" to upper/outer forearm. Since it was changing frequently I kept telling....

    My TM is becoming MS.

    It seems the TM I have had since 2010 is morphing into MS. Apparently this is not uncommon. My hands are becoming shake, coordination is worse, my voice is beginning to quaver and I am even forgetting how to spell. Thoughts? Thanks

    Maybe ms?

    I have tingling in my hands and feet, memory loss, shaky hands, fatigue and vertigo. These symptoms have all started in the last six months. I'm only 26, and have no ms history in my family that I'm aware of but all symptoms point to ms to me? Anyone else have these symptoms and were diagnosed with ms? What treatment do you receive? Or if not, what were you told was wrong of not ms? Thanks on advance!

    Right eye very sensitive to light

    I am an MS patient and been dealing with different maladies. I am taking Gilenya for the MS. Just recently my right eye only has become very red, very painful, and very sensitive to light. September of 2018 I had another MRI with contrast. Could that be causing this latest issue? This has been going on since the last MRI. I am desperate for relief.

    M.S?

    I have been fighting for a diagnosis for a few years. I have been tested for everything under the sun. Original Dax was possible m.s. I have lesions shown by mri. Actually first showed 6, then 12, last mri was 16. Spinal tap negative so dr began testing for other things. I have chronic fatigue, muscle numbness, neuropathy in all extremities including my face, just to name a few. I’m dying for answers to what is wrong w me!

    Numbness, No reflex +

    Hey everyone, this is my first time posting here, or even online at all really... But I will appologise for how long this might be before hand. I am a 23yo, female. Had a Microdiscectomy and Laminectomy when I was 18 and recovered with no deficits whatsoever. Around April last year (2018) so started to get a few symptoms of sciatica and some numbness of the outside of my left foot. I saw my doctor and had a scan. It's showed a small protrusion, and bone spurs. I was referred back to my neurosurgeon....

    Resurgence of Symptoms

    About 6 years ago (I am 29 now) I went to the doctor with numbness and tingling in my left arm and leg as well as back pain. I was referred to a neurologist and after a battery of tests, I was sent for an MRI. The neuro said there were lesions present but not enough to diagnose. He said that it was more than likely stress. At the time that was ok with me because I was in the process of leaving a highly stressful job. Fast forward to today I have had symptoms on and off since the initial MRI but now....

    Numbness, muscle twitching, and no diagnosis? Read this.

    I felt compelled to write this a year and a half after first experiencing neurological issues because #1, it seems that a lot of folks who have similar undiagnosed conditions simply "disappear" online (hopefully that means they've gotten better), and #2, I am still alive after a year and a half, so my goal is to give hope to anyone who is experiencing similar symptoms and have not had any luck with a diagnosis. First things first. If you have not seen any neurologists, stop reading....

    Symptoms

    Hi. Could someone please tell me what their symptoms are that alerted them to MS? Also did anyone have constant bouts of dizziness and lightheadness?
